Tijuana, BC - More than 4,500 social work, psychological and legal counseling services, as well as attention to 1,506 women who suffered violence for the first time and 1,014 follow-up services were part of comprehensive actions made in the entity by the Women's Institute of Baja California (Inmujer) during 2012, said the Director General, Gloria Loza Galvan.
She stressed they held about 200 presentation events on prevention and awareness for women living in these sectors and those with problems through various mechanisms, where the participation of the society as a whole is of vital importance.
Prevention of violence, human rights of women, motherhood, responsible parenthood, dating violence, self-esteem and gender perspective were some of the topics addressed by specialists during the teachings, talks, workshops and conferences.
The State official said that during the new year, Inmujer of Baja California will strengthen its comprehensive programs to extend coverage in colonies of the five State municipalities with the purpose of bringing services and moving further on the path toward a life without violence.
It will be important, she said, to take advantage of the 36 resources for women counted in 23 different services of the three orders of Government in the entity capable of providing advance services and guidance to assist women who are unaware of where they can go if they are victims of violence.
In recent months, The Women's Institute of the State reviewed the progress it made in 2012 in order to update their programs and give priority this year to those which were successful, so that in 2013 the past achievements can be reflected in a better quality of life for women who for some reason have proved to be victims of violence. http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n2828068.htm
First Baby of 2013 in Playas de Rosarito is Born (El Sol de Tijuana, 1/3/13)
Playas de Rosarito, BC - In the municipality of Rosarito the first baby was born on 2 January 2013. Edgar Acosta is the name of the infant expected by the family.
The system for the Integral Development of the Family (DIF), chaired by First Lady Karla López de Robles, went to the Hospital where the mother gave birth to make the official presentation of a basket of accessories for the baby.
"Having a child is one of the greatest congratulations in DIF. We are very pleased to be able to give them a basket for the baby and we reiterate that if they require support, to come to the paramunicipal", said the First Lady.
The support given by Lopez Robles consists of clothing, diapers, headwear, accessories, a blanket, as well as a stroller and pantry items.
Karla Martínez de Jesús, the mother of little Edgar who was born in the General Hospital of Rosarito, cheerfully explained when she received the present, "I'm very happy to have my baby in my arms and deliver this gift for my son Edgar".
But to have Edgar come into the world, his parents went through various difficulties. "I was in the house, then I heard my wife start to scream and very strong in the pain of childbirth and then I thought, now my son will be born", said Salvador Acosta, the father of the newborn.
Even while nervous, he shared his experience, since he said that at that time in the absence of a car he had to call a taxi, but realized he had no credit on his cell phone, so he had to leave his wife and run to a self-service store to replenish the balance.
"I went running to the store and called a taxi, but when the taxi arrived, she had to go to the hospital alone because I was staying to care for our other children", explained the man. http://www.oem.com.mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n2828090.htm
